What is Up With a Twist?

Up With a Twist is SANCA’s annual circus spectacular gala event! The fund raising dinner and show features fabulous circus performances from guest artists and SANCA’s Youth Performance Companies. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s gala was moved from February to August 2021.

The event raises funds to support SANCA’s work and programs that serve the whole of our community. Our social circus programs have been suspended due to the pandemic, so Twist this year will help SANCA raise funds to rebuild the program which provides circus to typically underserved populations, including those who cannot afford classes. This includes Every Body’s Circus (EBC), the new BIPOC Youth Scholarship, outreach into nearby communities, and more.

Up With A Twist – BLOSSOM, A Circus Odyssey

Join Dr Eugenio Phalenopsis and his crew as they search for rare botanical species in the deepest jungles and bring back seeds of undiscovered flora to sprout in the laboratory. 

What great treasures will they find? What seeds of new beginnings? What seeds are in all of us that need to be watered, nurtured and sprouted? What is in the garden of our hearts?

Come join us August 28th at ECTA for SANCA’s Summer fund and friend raiser “Up With A Twist”, as we come together to celebrate the power of circus to strengthen, open and free our imaginations.

We can’t wait to see you there.
